With the delayed European Championships finally kicking off this weekend, England fans are once again praying that football will finally be coming home.

But, with Covid protocols still in place for the time being, the question is where will people tune in to watch the Three Lions’ European venture?

Our reporter, Aaron McMillan, ask people in Wells-next-the-Sea where they will be watching the games.

James Colson, 40 from Kettering: “It all depends on what is allowed, but I imagine I will go to the pub for the atmosphere.

"I’d prefer to be in the pub for the cold drafts of beers and you do not have to walk to the fridge. Plus with the atmosphere, it feels like you are at a match.”

Matthew Warr, 43 from Lincoln: “I will be watching at home because it is a bit of a hassle to be fair, so I will probably stay at home and watch it with friends there.

"Depending on how successful we are, if we go far maybe I will go out for it, or have more people out in the garden for it. For the Scotland game, we are on a stag do, so I will definitely be in the pub for that one.”
